Everything is finally starting to leaf out here, but we're still a full two weeks behind schedule! Your blossoms are gorgeous! :flirt:

Love your double tulip, Chico. I take no notice of advert's for them seeing I can't grow them here, so I can honestly say I haven't seen one before. What is the pink flower, it's another I haven't grown. Your forget-me-nots are beautiful. My sister warned and warned me not to plant those because they can be invasive but here they grew, barely flowered, died and that was that. :( There might be the odd one coming up again(or it's a weed I'm seeing instead).

The hot pink is a bleeding heart. What is the bush?

Beautiful flowers Chico. I love the double tulip, can't grow tulips here, the little animals eat the bulbs, but they don't like the dafodils, so at least I have them. My bleeding heart has bloomed and gone already.

But the lilacs are blooming, in a couple of days it will smell lovely at my house:D

I too would like to know what the bush is.

Nice pics Chico!

The pick plant is a rhodedendran..they are beuatiful but very finicky to grow!

I've had that Rhodo for many years,does not grow very much,but it will soon be full of flowers.
My Lilac will be blooming in a couple of days too and the other bushes.
It's too bad the Lilac does not last very long,the smell reminds me of my childhood 150yrs ago:laughing:

One of my lilac bushes is smelling mighty pretty. I was working out back and when the wind blew the right way, it was so beautiful.

After I asked what the bush was, I knew, what do you do to keep it blooming. I have had a few but they do not survive.:shrug: I would like to try again.

Sylvie,I don't do anything to it,not even trim it or fertilize,I just leave it alone.
All I do is cover it in the winter.

My white lilac seems to flower for a fair while. I wonder if they are tougher than the lilac coloured lilacs? It's disappointing that some of the nicest things have a short flowering period, like Bearded Iris for instance . Makes you appreciate repeat flowering roses.
